Pathways 2006: Cultural Intersections in Native North America
The Yale Group for the Study of Native America invites submissions for an upcoming conference- Pathways 2006: Cultural Intersections in Native North America to be held April 7-9, 2006 in New Haven, CT. The goals of this conference are: to provide a comfortable forum for graduate students working at the intersection of American Indian or Alaska Native Studies and other Ethnic and Area Studies, such as African American Studies, Asian American Studies, and Latin American Studies, to share their work, and to foster student-to-student and student-to-professional relationships by encouraging networking and community-building for those working across traditional disciplinary boundaries.
Areas of study may include but are not limited to: History, Literature and Theatre Studies, Anthropology, Law and Policy, and the Arts.
Papers may present a portion of the student's original research, demonstrate emergent theoretical and methodological approaches, or
advance pedagogical strategies for reaching students across departmental divides.
Individual papers rather than panels are preferred. We are especially desirous of papers that demonstrate and discuss emergent approaches in the study of Native North America, and/or those that demonstrate an active involvement with Native communities. In order to foster a regionally diverse community of graduate student presenters, travel expenses will be paid for students whose papers are selected.
We are very pleased to announce that Philip Deloria (Dakota) will deliver the keynote address to open Pathways 2006. Professor Deloria is the Director of the Program in American Culture at the University of Michigan and also teaches in the Department of History. In addition to co-editing _The Blackwell Companion to American Indian History_ (Cambridge: Blackwell, 2002) with Neal Salisbury, he is the author of Indians in Unexpected Places (University Press of Kansas, 2004) and Playing Indian (Yale University Press, 1998). Professor Deloria received his Ph.D. in American Studies at Yale in 1994.
